July 24th

24 JUL : Upon your arrival to Pamukkale about 07:00 am, you will be met and transferred to the hotel for refreshment. Departure for the tour about 09.00 am which is the center of natural thermal spring waters with healing properties. Due to the chemical properties in the water, pure white colored travertine and stepped water terraces have been created on the mountain slope. It is for its resemblance to cotton piles that it is called ´Cotton Castle´ in Turkish. Visit the travertine and the ancient city of Hierapolis which has the biggest Necropolis with 1200 gravestones in Anatolia. The sacred pool also is one of the highlights of the site. There shallow thermal waters ripple over a wonderful scattering of ancient roman ruins that lie beneath. After the tour, you will be transferred to the bus station for taking a bus to Ephesus which is about 4 hours of journey. Accommodation in Kusadasi. (L)
